Originally form New Jersey, Elliott coupled his love for sports and photography at an early age as the Photo Editor of his high school newspaper. At Franklin & Marshall College he was Photo Editor and then the Sports Section Editor of the newspaper. Per the recommendation of the hockey coach, Elliott then pursued and completed a Sports Management Master’s Degree from the University of Miami. After a brief stint in guest relations with the Florida Panthers, Elliott’s career representing talent began. Elliott worked at Miami's largest modeling agency which was launching a revolutionary niche division coupling their fashion contacts with professional athletes. The timing of the concept was perfect as Miami became the hot spot internationally for fashion, film, fitness and active lifestyle productions. In subsequent years, at several of Miami’s top agencies, Elliott worked with a wide variety of talent including pro and amateur athletes, models, dancers and actors. Elliott’s is excited to add his experience with talent development and client recruitment to SLU’s team.
